Concept of God
Whenever we get into any trouble, especially when we face it alone, and feel helpless, we remember and want help from someone, someone very powerful. Again, when we commit any crime, we feel guilty from our conscious mind but we also get a little frightened that someone is watching and that we will have to pay the cost of our actions to that someone. This super power being is God who ...view middle of the document...

However, if you ask a learned Hindu who has knowledge about the religious scriptures of Hinduism, he will tell you that a Hindu should actually believe in only one God. If we analyze the Hindu scriptures like the Vedas, the Upanishads, the Bhagwat Geeta etc., we come to know about this fact. According to the Chandogya Upanishad- “God is one only, not a second” [Ch.6, Sec.2, Verse no.1] that means - There is only one God. It means there is nothing like God and therefore He has got no image and He is unseen. Same message is repeated in Yajurved Ch.32, Verse no.3. So far these verses show that there is only one God who is totally independent and He is formless or imageless, He is beyond imagination. There are some other verses from the scriptures which talk against Idol Worshipping. Yajurved Ch.40, Verse no.8 says, “God is bodiless.” It means He is formless, so Idol Worshipping is not correct. Some other verses directly prohibit Idol Worshipping.
To explain this deviation from the scriptures by the common Hindus the Hindu scholars put two arguments. Some scholars argue that in higher level of knowledge and consciousness worshipping of one true God is required, otherwise in lower level Idol Worshipping can be accepted to let common people concentrate on worshipping. If they do not get any mental picture in mind, they cannot concentrate on their worshipping. On the other hand some other scholars argue to explain the pantheism concept in Hinduism. The renowned Hindu scholar Sri Sri Ravi Shankar writes in his book ‘Hinduism & Islam- The Common Thread’ that “The white light is made up of seven different colors, in the same way 330 million gods & goddesses represent the one true God in Hinduism” [p.1].
Concept of God in Buddhism:
There is no clear concept of God in Buddhism. This sometimes is not even considered as religion rather it is considered as self-relief way of life. Buddhism neither accepts the concept of God nor denies it. Still the followers, the Buddhists, generally accept ‘Buddha’ as their ‘Lord’ and worship him. However, at the time of ‘Buddha’ most of his followers were Hindus and as ‘Buddha’ did not give them any clear concept about God, they put the concept of God according to their knowledge from Hinduism after ‘Buddha’ departed. Some Buddhists also consider ‘Buddha’ as an Avatar or incarnated form of ‘Vishnu’. Buddhism strongly believes in cycle of rebirth and also believes that everyone is bonded in this cycle which includes gods. Even though some concepts or talks about gods are found in Buddhism, they are considered as lower level than human. According to Buddhism gods have power over human beings just like human beings overpower other animals but human beings have the sole potentiality to upgrade their level by meditation, strong determination and good way of life. So, gods are actually considered as super power beings only and nothing more than that.
However, the concept of God in Buddhism according to the Buddhists...
